If you choose to use an alternative mode of transport, like a bike, you get to see and take in a lot of things you would't normally see. For me, time spent riding my bike, is like a session of mindfulness. You can't help but be in the moment, observing everything and feeling the wind on your body. Last time I had to go to the hairdresser and pick up a few things at the supermarket and decided to ride, I was hoping for cooler weather but it was still quite hot, although I always think it is cooler on the bike rather than getting back into a hot car. We live near the canals at Newport and delight in seeing this little hand made yacht everyday.

|A lovely tree lined street I ride through every day. The houses and gardens on this street are really well maintained and you often see neighbours helping each other. It's a lovely community feel|
